complication in chuck hagel's confirmation. lindsay graham pointed to some newly reported comments that hagel is said to have made at rutgers university a few years ago, that the state department was becoming an adjunct of the israeli foreign ministry. >> he said the u.s. state was the adjunct of the israeli foreign ministry office. i got a letter back from the senator in response, did you say that and do you believe that. the letter said he did not recall saying that. and he disavows that statement. >> eric: joining us is chris wallace. these xhechblts are coming out about the jewish lobby and iranian regime is legitimate and latest comment that latest one, what does it mean? >> if he never said it it doesn't mean anything. he said he didn't recall which is not a flat denial. you think you would recall it if you said something like that. this is a was in a age of cellphones and somebody has a record of it. if it turned out he said that, it mate be curtains for him. we don't have any indication he did say it other an blog post. that is the interesting things here, although the senators who bl
. it will be very interesting. i commend people to watch it and very interesting conversation with lindsay graham. he calls him the hagel, he is going to voted against him. he calls him radical and unqualified. he think,000 is bad nominee. >> eric: chris, thank you so much. you can watch chris's interview on fox news sunday. he sits down with rand paul of kentucky. fox news sunday is right here on the fox news channel later on today. >> jamie: the doctors will be here for their sunday house calls. they will tell you about a brand-new device that could make a world of difference for the blind. they also have a warning for men who take a common supplement that could cause kidney stones. that coming up and taking your questions on that topic or any others, go to foxnews.com/sundayhouse calls and we will take one of your questions right on the air. we'll be right back. ...with geico... ohhh...sorry! director's voice: here we go. from the top. and action for over 75 years people have saved money with gecko so.... director's voice: cut it! ...what...what did i say? gecko? i said gecko? aw... for over 7
. say you're lindsay graham and you have a town meeting, a lot of people are thinking is graham really with us? is he fighting the president to the wall the way we want him to? lindsay graham does have to be very concerned about getting primaried. everyone's talking about chuck hagel. i think back in their district the intensity, the people who demonstrate real interest, intensity and knowledge about the situation, are they the conservative base? for the most part for someone like lindsay graham, absolutely yes. i think that's key to what's happening here. >> all right, mr. crowley, let's talk some turkey. mike murphy has a post-op in time saying the white house has come to the shaky conclusion that the president's best tactic is continue the campaign theatrics and force the gop congress to bend to his will. he writes the president must abandon the silly campaign 3.0 stuff and face reality and since magic doors one lock the door to the votes "some beneficiaries pay more and change cpi," which is budgetary code for slyly lowering budget increases over time. what do you think of this str
concern? >> it's his supported of israel. he said to have made this speech and here is lindsay graham this morning on fox news sunday. >> allegedly senator hagel said that the u.s. state department was an adjunct of the israeli foreign minister's office which i think would be breathtaking if he said that to have such a view. i got a letter back in response to my question, did you say that and do you believe that. and the letter said he did not recall saying that and disavows the statement. >> unless new information comes to light and john mccain, even though he think hagel is not qualified, senate should confirm him because of reasonable amount of time for questions to be asked. >> harris: what is the white house saying about this whole episode so far for the hagel nomination? >> president said in a google appearance that much of the talk about benz, many questions were asked about that, benghazi. congress is running out of questions. the nomination of chuck hagel to be defense secretary and john brennan to head the c.i.a. are both hanging in the balance. the chief of staff says that
his financial disclosures. >> let me play what snasht lindsay graham has said about chuck hagel and he is willing to fight until the very end. let's play it please. >> you know that the debate on chuck hagel is not over, it has not been serious and we do not have the information we need and i am going to fight the idea of jamming somebody through. i'm going to hit you and keep hitting you, absolutely. you're not going to get away with not answering basic questions. >> that is a man that is not ready to give up, i'm going to hilt you and keep hitting you, it went from iran to israel, to benghazi, chuck hagel was not a part of the administration during benghazi. we have seen panetta and others testify. is this a legitimate point that this is pay back for the surge and that lindsay graham and senator john mccain have decided somehow in their minds they're doing this. >> i don't think it's pay back for the surge, i think this is pay back for a republican willing to serve in a democratic administration. no matter what you call this, filibuster or otherwise, i think it's at odds with the con
and the upper chamber. >> but he has such a strong personal relationship with lindsay graham, and lindsay graham is so personally invested in his 2014 re-election and being seen as the guy who is fighting the obama administration on this, so i kind of feel like -- it's just a guess, but my thought is that graham will eventually drop it. that will allow mccain to drop it. that will allow them to follow suit. then you have a new precedent. let's say you get to the floor with this vote, and it's 55-45 or 57-43. a party line vote is not entirely new, but that's close to a new phenomenon too for defense secretary for a cabinet nominee, and if that becomes the new rule for cabinet nominees going forward, what happens when the next president comes along and his or her party does not control the senate. if that's the new norm that's established, you have a big problem there. >> oh. >> no different from the senate. remember, john mccain was the guy who negotiated that deal to stop the nuclear option before? remember, he was the one that stood in the way of the very idea of filibustering cabinet nominees,
. then lindsay graham. those are strong conservative republicans and they're not buying it. let me tell you one thing, at the end of the day, if what the republicans want is an ineffective secretary of defense, why? they're not going to agree with obama's policies. ettes far better to have a weak secretary of defense than a strong one who shoves the president's policies down. >> neil: that might be the choice we're left with. kt, always good seeing you. >> thanks, neil. >> from gold to gone, a a meddle winner charged with murdering his girlfriend. ma anyone gunshot.

senators and lindsay graham say they will not block a vote. next week, even if they end up voting against him. mike is live from washington. what are republicans saying about the delay. >> they say chuck hagel is a controversial nominee and time allows them important time to take a closer look at them. they obtained a letter that send to graham and another senator drafting a speech accusing the state department was an adjunct of the israeli foreign minister's office. ha gefl says he disavow the statement attributed to me. here is one of the recipients of that letter. >> so i'm glad that we have got more time to look. i am glad he answered my question about the comment he allegedly made. i think we're doing our job to scrutinize i think one of the most unqualified, radical choices for secretary of defense in a very long time. >> reporter: senator graham is hoping time will lead to them thinking twice. >> shep: republicans have been mad at him but what is reaction? >> president obama reminded folks that he a wartime hero. >> i think senator mccain and others know we have to work together to
the nation sunday senator lindsay graham acknowledged he would use a rule that allows a senator to put a hold on presidential nominees. the south carolina republican hopes that by delaying the confirmations of chuck hagel and john brennan he can force the white house to answer questions about how much president obama knew about the attack in benghazi. >> i want to know what our president did. did he pick up the phone and call anybody? i think this is stuff the country needs to know. >> four americans including ambassador chris stevens were killed on the attack. republicans have accused the administration of misleading the public about the attack. >> the white house has been stone walling the congress. i'm going to do everything i can to get to the bottom of this and hold this president accountable. >> graham's willingness to block the president's nominees has worked once already. last month he signalled he would take action to prevent the confirmations unless leon penetta testified about benghazi. they were all on capitol hill last week. democratic senator jack reed said graham is over reacti
's a very delicate dance they've got to do here. and that's what rubio, mccain, lindsay graham, are doing with their proposal here. and they're getting hammered for it, to a large extent. and that's what i'm a little worried about, is rubio, because he's interested in 2016, is going to look for any excuse to walk away from this and say, well, i tried. there is a suspicion. if i can interpret what rand paul is saying into english, they have a fear that the democrats just want to use this as an issue to keep the latinos in their camp and not actually have an immigration deal, appear to have an immigration deal and not have one. so they can continue to solidify the latinos. >> dana, i guess the other way of looking at this from the white house is a stand point of this has to be adversarial when it comes to rubio's role in this. because he has sort of separated himself from what has been the republican mainstream on immigration for the last half decade or so, really going out on a limb. and if you look at the psychology of today's republican party, it's not let's team up with obama, let's giv
to delay chunk hagel's nomination as defense secretary, lindsay graham says republicans were just doing their due diligence. >> you are talking about a person whose voting record shows softness on iran and antagonism toward israel. he would be the most antagonistic in history. i think we're doing our job to scrutiny recognize i think one of the most unqualified radical choices for secretary of defense in a have a long time. >> peter: what does this mean to the american people and our troops serving overseas. joining us is steve, the ceo of concerned veterans of america. good morning. i would think that as a veteran receive a you would love this guy, did veteran representative, would you love this guy did you does he meet the mark or not? >> we came out early against senator ha did gel as the nominee for secretary of defense. we do honor and thank him what he as done for veterans. he has bring great for veterans. >> peter: where does he fall in line? >> wrong man, wrong job, wrong time. he hasn't been a thought meter on the issues and hasn't been forward looking in defense and hasn't put
tomorrow and wednesday morning. >>> lindsay graham threatening to hold up two nominees. graham will block john brennan from the cia director job and chuck hagel from the defense secretary post unless the white house gives more information about last year's attack in benghazi. >> i don't think we should allow brennan to go forward for the c.i.a. directorship, hag hagel to be confirmed to the secretary of defense, until the white house gives us an accounting. did the president pick up the phone and call anyone in the living government to help these folks? what did the president do? >> a startling new report just released from the federal trade commission that found up to 42 million americans have errors in their credit report. about half of which are considered significant. the consumer data industry association is hitting back saying "credit reports are materially accurate 98% of the time and when they do contain mistakes, our members work to resolve them quickly and to the consumers' satisfaction 95% of the time. dueling math there. >>> "saturday night live" mocking cbs sports when the li
for a simple majority vote later this month but we want some answers on benghazi answered and senator lindsay graham is the guy behind it. listen to this. >> the best evidence of what happened that night were the survivors. they will not give the united states congress, the f.b.i. interviews of the survivors. we've been told five different versions of who changed the talking points. this is not transparent. they're delaying, denying, deceiving. they ran out the clock during the election. i will not give up until we know what happened. at the end of the day it is about four dead americans. the way this president handled this situation, his national security team, is a travesty and we need to get to the bottom of it. and we will. >>alisyn: no interviews with survivors provided to the lawmakers. still no idea where the suspects are. they were released and are roaming freely somewhere in the middle east. plus no idea what the president was doing during those eight hours other than a 15- to half an hour phone call. no other records. >>steve: we know what he was doing. he was campaigning. >>alisyn:
